Wikipedia is a special app that puts users in contact with a huge database of more than twenty million articles. These articles cover a huge range of different subjects from quantum physics to the latest television shows and the appis completely free to use without any limitations.
Information at Your Fingertips
for those not already in the know, Wikipedia is a volunteer based project that was started more than a decade ago. Users who have in depth knowledge about a particular subject can sign up to become a Wikipedia contributor. Once a contributor has been accepted, they can then create a Wiki page on the subject of their choice or add extra information to an excising page to help make it more comprehensible.
Becoming a True Brainiac
Anyone who has a thirst for knowledge and want to be able to access an ever growing database of information is sure to love using Wikipedia. The app is free from third party advertising and the broad spectrum of subjects that are covered is very impressive, although people who are using the resource as part of an educational project should make sure that they double check the information they use for accuracy.
Wikipedia is the most popular free encyclopedia online, and now it's available on Windows 8 as a Metro app.
Wikipedia is a user-edited website that contains literally millions of pages about virtually any subject under the sun. Now you can access the site directly through the Wikipedia Metro app to search for whatever topics suit your current whims.
The Wikipedia app's interface is just about as simple as the website itself. You can search by topic via a search bar, or else click through highlighted links in the text that you're already reading on a current subject. Wikipedia's Metro app uses the same basic color scheme as the website, meaning articles are easy to browse and read.
In addition, you can pin articles for later reading, as well as share articles to other Metro applications. Wikipedia also has support for articles in different languages.
Wikipedia has nice integration with Metro, as well as all the great information you want about any topic of your choosing.
